Why Hire an ADHD Career Coach?
There’s no shortage of tips and advice available for handling normal challenges like procrastination, time management and organization so why don’t these solutions work for you? Because the usual solutions don’t work for you. At least not entirely and here’s why.
- Make a list: The normal solution for not forgetting is to keeps lists. What if you would be making lists all day and losing them, and making more lists, and then forget to look at your list?
- Just do it: Making yourself do something that’s boring or difficult–what if that’s just not happening? Sometimes it’s not that simple.
- Keep track of the time. What does that mean to a person with ADHD? It often means high levels of stress and anxiety.
- Think first, then act: Easy for some to say. Impulsivity is a common issue with ADHD and it’s not going away because we want it to. Neither is burn out from hyper-focus.
- Do it my way: If you have ADHD, chances are you’ve been trying to do things the “normal way” for a long time. How’s that going?

Working with an ADHD career coach means looking at answers, solutions and strategies that are tailored for you personally. ADHD is highly individual. You will benefit from working with a coach who understands the challenges ADHD presents and who will work with you to triumph over those challenges.
Why work with Career Coach to get around ADHD?
- It’s invisible: ADHD messes with your executive function, which in turn messes with everything you do that involves thinking, whether you or anyone else knows that. Overcoming the very real challenges of impaired executive function requires understanding exactly how ADHD is affecting your work.
- It’s not going away: ADHD also inhibits the brain’s built in reward system that allows us to summon up “will power”. Unless you have learned how to hot-wire your thinking, no amount of forcing yourself will enable you to overcome symptoms of ADHD.
- It’s unique to you: There are some great books and articles on ADHD but do they offer the solutions that will work for you? There are significant benefits to working with a coach who can help you work out how your ADHD is affecting you.
- It’s not insurmountable: Untreated ADHD can cause increasing levels of disruption at work. When you are ready to tackle the ADHD head-on, most of the issues will fall away quickly and the rest can be managed.
- It’s about more useful skills: Bullying yourself through your ADHD symptoms is exhausting and ineffective. Working with a coach will give you a safe place to learn about yourself and the skills you need to thrive.
